Haapsalu Castle

The hub of a small country since 1279

The Bishop’s Castle in Haapsalu is an architectural gem built in the 13th century. It was the residence of local authorities until the end of the 17th century.

In the main castle, there is a museum about the Middle Ages. From there you can head to the cathedral in the south wing, which was first mentioned in Chronicles from 1279. The museum presents the ancient history of Haapsalu and the living environment of the medieval fortress in a conventional and playful hands-on format.

The dimly lit atmosphere of the building helps to create an immersive experience of the medieval world with a variety of items and interactive exhibits. The 700-meter-long journey on two floors of the castle is an exciting discovery in a unique medieval environment, suitable for visitors of all ages.

There is also a playground with attractions for children in the moat.
